With growing reluctance to store and disseminate sensitive data throughout a supply chain network, there is a need to understand sentiment of big data and ways of control to achieve greater economic viability in the service-oriented supply chain which reflect a greater focus on knowledge sharing from traditional supply chains. Social network data were collected after referencing a focal corporate media (CM) document. This study provides causal inference by first conducting a CM document search a...

Sentiments expressed through social media can reflect behavioural attributes of trust, commitment, collaboration, and information sharing between or among actors in supply chain management (SCM) relationships. These four attributes are generally considered to enhance SCM performance if each is at a high level. In this study, sentiment mining was undertaken using three different web crawler algorithms focusing on blog, forum, and Twitter sources. After classifying the mined sentiment data, scores...

This exploratory study addresses uncertainty in supply chain management (SCM) interfaces required for effective buyer-supplier partnerships which may be more critical at different phases and organisational levels of decision making. The phases of plan, source, make and deliver, and the operational, tactical and strategic levels of decision making are considered. Fuzzy probabilities of degree of fit to goals set to statistical confidence intervals are applied to survey data from over 400 buyers c...

By applying a sentiment analysis, we examine how firms can achieve organisational resilience by focusing on two different operational strategies in their responses to adverse events: anticipatory responses or reactionary responses. We examined 210 firms and found that firms that focus on an anticipatory strategy of investing in corporate social responsibility benefited from increased organisational resilience. We also found that firms that focus on a reactionary focus of risk management practice...

Although foreign ownership has been widely studied to show its impact on firm performance, the findings are mixed and the underlying rational to explain the impact is not entirely clear. The purpose of this study is to determine if there is a direct relationship between foreign ownership and performance or if this relationship is indirect and affected by mediating and moderating variables such as international diversification and competitive environment.,Financial data, survey data and other fin...

In light of this, the purpose of this paper is to examine the relationship between corporate responsibility framing from the social media perspective firm’s performance as defined by abnormal-return (defined as the difference between a single stock or portfolios return and the expected retur...

Analysis of comments and opinions expressed in social media can be used to gather additional intelligence via market research information to better predict consumer behavior. The area of “opinion mining”, particularly sentiment analysis, aims to find, extract, and systematically analyze people’s opinions, attitudes and emotions towards certain topics. Performance of a supply chain is closely associated with the level of trust, collaboration, and information sharing among its members. In this pap...

In order for the human race to continue to thrive in the long term, we have to learn how to manage our natural resources wisely. In order to manage something you must first be able to measure it. Macrosustainabilty is the key to finding solutions to megaproblems facing the Earth such as insufficient access to food, environmental degradation, declining natural resources, and deteriorating communities. This paper measures and manages global macrosustainabilty. An optimisation model has been set ba...
